There is a lot to remember about Mandela, but we should not forget that he was a Communist. This is just to keep you informed about the facts as you will be hearing lots of praises during the next week.
Check it out:
Nelson Mandela, the former president of South Africa from 1994 to 1999, has died at the age of 95.
Prior to his presidency, Mandela was incarcerated for 27 years at three different prisons after pleading guilty to 156 acts of public violence including the Johannesburg railway station bombing.
He was also a member of the South African Communist Party and a co-founder of Umkhonto we Sizwe, a guerrilla warfare group declared a terrorist organization by the United States in the 1960s.

I must  treat this subject with impartiality and fairness, however a sensitive thorn in my side, that I wrestle with often.   The Bible tells me just what the future will be for US Christians in the world, and I side with the camp that says America is not ever mentioned in the Bible !!  Some of my dear friends disagree with me, and that's OK too.   I do not dump friends just because I disagree with them.   I have been wrong many times, and admitted it.... and my friends wrong at times too.  I care for all my friends and never, ever want to hurt them...  or "Lord it over them!!"  I have always challenged my close friends to correct me if they see error --- because who wants to walk around with their clothes 'undun ?'   Again,  Israel WILL BE THE CENTER OF THE WORLD, and many who try to control and wrestle with it will be broken and bent.   God is not One to be mocked!   Some things, very few, are in the "gray area" in the KJV Bible, IMHO, but we work in that area with full knowledge of "God's Mind set."  His leanings, and past dictates, rules, thoughts, etc., and surely nothing approaching Salvation and other really important items would be involved or threatened, or misunderstood.  In other words, all the important stuff is sufficiently covered  in the KJV Bible, [and a few others-- like the NASB,  and  the Geneva Bible,  IMHO],  so that we KNOW what we are to do in this world.   This world must end....  so that the real 'New Heavens and New Earth' can finally emerge and consummate God's Grand Plan, for eternity.   See:  Revelation, please.

To be on the safe side,  I do vote in local and Federal elections,  discuss the facts and weight in on  things I feel is important....   I write letters, emails, sign petitions and even Prep a little, for emergencies of all sorts.      But, [yes, here comes the BUT!!], our primary purpose in life as a Christian, is to magnify, glorify and worship Father God, and also share the Gospel.   We sure are living in the 'Last Days' -- so I would not be trying really hard to PERPETUATE THIS OLD, WICKED, SATANIC WORLD !!   But for the time being, I will try to support all the good laws and the U.S. Constitution, as an Oath Keeper, in a Conservative way.   The "OTHER WAY" is pure Socialism,  Communism, and Satan's world.... which is not where Freedom loving people want to be/ live.  And that is where I stand on this issue.

It has been said by our wise fore Fathers who wrote the Constitution, the our Democratic REPUBLIC can only work/ succeed in a moral,  civil,  educated,  Judean- Christian environment.  Not a dumbed down, savage, Socialist system.  Please remember that.

Judiciary Committee hears testimony on "Imperial" president

Jonathan Turley, George Washington University law professor, is a progressive and a champion of the leftist agenda. He told the House Judiciary Committee on December 3 that there is a threat to America that is not "simply posing a danger to the constitutional system" but rather "the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid." Turley was not speaking about conservative talk shows or conservative figures in politics, whether they be in the House or the Senate that might be pushing freedom of religion or be against immigration reform. To him, a progressive liberal, the greatest threat to the country is the man who occupies the Oval Office. Turley believes in the rule of law, and that this president threatens it.
He said, "In recent years, I have testified and written about the shift of power within our tripartite government toward a more Imperial Presidential model...I was equally concerned about the overall expansion of unchecked presidential authority and the relative decline of legislative power in the modern American system. The recent nonenforcement policies add a particularly menacing element to this pattern. They effectively reduce the legislative process to a series of options for presidential selection ranging from negation to full enforcement. The Framers warned us of such a system and we accept it - either by acclaim or acquiescence - at our peril."
He continued, "The current claims of executive power will outlast this president and members must consider the implications of the precedent that they are now creating through inaction and silence." He said, "The division of governmental powers is designed to protect liberty by preventing the abusive concentration of power. All citizens -Democratic or Republican or Independent - should consider the inherent danger presented by a President who can unilaterally suspend laws as a matter of presidential license." Turley also expressed grave concern over the increasing power of government agencies and the Supreme Court's recent ruling that they could "actually define their own or interpret their own jurisdiction."
Turley recognizes something many Christian Americans fail to see: that we are all in great danger of losing our Constitutional freedoms. We are closer to living in a freedom-as-a-storefront dictatorship than at any time in our history. I have heard so-called "prophets" speak of the demise of America. I have also heard that Christians should not be involved in government or politics. But we as Christians have been blessed by God with a nation where we have a say. Psalm 33:12 says, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance." What inheritance have we wrought? What stewards are we?
Our collective silence and inaction is approval. But the pulpit certainly reminds us each week that God loves us and wants us to be all that we can be.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
